Your Public Library Card - Passport to Subscription Databases from Home

Interested in connecting to subscription databases from home? The State of New Jersey funds several databases through its JerseyClicks portal, and connecting from home is easy with a valid public library card from any New Jersey library. From home you'll be prompted to enter the bar-code number on the card, and you're in.

In addition to the databases provided through JerseyClicks, several county and regional cooperative systems offer additional subscription databases to patrons of member libraries. As with JerseyClicks, off-site access to many of these resources is available with a valid public library card.
